  1. A recent update reported the woman boarded the aircraft with her stroller and placed it in the over-head bin, and when the male cabin crew (bald AA flight attendant on the video ) noticed, proceeded to remove the stroller out of the bin to gate check it. In the process of removing the stroller from the bin the stroller almost hit one of her kids, this is where the problem begins. I assume the woman was arguing with the male flight attendant at the same time the he was removing the stroller and was emotionally refusing to gate check it. The fact the stroller almost hit one of her kids is moot, she can cry all she wants the stroller did not touch her kid. I have no idea how she actually boarded the aircraft with the stroller. Usually there's a cabin crew member located at the door to greet and assist passengers, but if that cabin crew member was distracted for a second that would explain how it got in the over-head bin in the first place. This should have been a non story. The male flight attendant could have handled things better and the woman was crying over spilled milk. Gate checking a stroller is SOP. If she drives it's exactly like putting it in the trunk of her car, but judging from the look of her over-stuffed backpack she wanted her stroller in the cabin along with all her backpack so she wouldn't have to wait on the ramp in Dallas for it to be brought to her. There are conflicting reports online, some state the woman was hit with the stroller and others say the kid was almost hit. Need more facts from other passengers who had a clear view of what happened to come forward and clear things up some.
  2. Yes and no. When an aircraft is still at the gate with the doors open, the captain has the power to remove a passenger but usually law enforcement has a higher authority. Once the doors are closed and the plane pushes back from the gate the captain has complete control over all the passengers and the aircraft.
  3. Standard operating procedure is to allow passengers with strollers the use of the stroller through security and into the secure part of the terminal up to the ramp, where it will be gate checked 100% of the time. Did she really think she was going to bring it into the cabin? Usually there are no fees to gate check a stroller (providing the parent paid for the correct number of seats for her kids-only one allowed on lap), however, if she was using the bottom shelf of the stroller to store items (many do) she might have been asked to pay a fee for any items in the stroller that would have to be bagged and gate checked as luggage. There needs to be a clear set of rules for air travel that spells out the airlines responsibilities, limitations and liability in certain instances, and rules for passenger conduct. Yes, the ticket fare rules are a good place to start but usually they only deal with the passenger end of the contract (rebooking fee, name change, no-show fee). Airline messes up, pay this set amount. A passenger goes crazy at 30000ft, this will happen. Air travel is a privilege, not a right. Far too many cry-babies are using airlines and expecting to be treated like royalty when they pay a cattle-class fare. 95% of the time most flights go off without a hitch, but having clear rules about the other 5% of the time when weather or mechanical delays, staffing shortages, security delays or just general idiot behavior by a passenger, would go a long way to stopping these incidents. I also think lifetime no-fly bans for passengers are a really good idea. So you act a fool with one airline, no problem that person can book with another airline next trip. But if a passenger knows there is no next time due to an IATA industry wide bad passenger no-fly ban, they might think twice about starting shit up in the air.
  4. Doing so prevents the light from her CP waking you up in the middle of the night when she texts ate/kuya/local BF/other long nose BF to reassure them she is still alive.
  5. I wish Kap would be traded to an Australian Rules football team... where they would elbow and pound the living crap outta him... legally of course
  6. If you're having issues with ants, I would start the seeds away from the ants and transplant them once they get large enough. I re-use old egg cartons. Cut the egg carton up so it gives you roughly 6 separate planting pots and poke some holes in the bottom of the egg cartons. Add some seedling soil mix to the cartons and if the soil is too dense add a little bit of sand for drainage and don't forget to label the seeds. If you have the room, I would make a table/bench in a corner of your yard so that you can elevate the seeds away from the ants and spray the table legs with baygon or any other insecticide, Add shade cloth over the bench if you notice the sun wilting the seedlings. I just started some tomato and bell pepper seeds the other day.
  7. I saw this the other day and it made me lol... Apologies to any Vikings fans out there
  8. Word on the street is... Mark Davis plans to keep the Raider name, but he has a few lame-duck years left in Oakland to make up his mind one way or the other.
  9. Confirmed today at the NFL Winter meetings, the Raiders are on the move to Vegas, which will be interesting. The players will love the much improved tax situation in Nevada, but every home game for the Raiders will most-likely be filled with fans from the other team looking to watch a game and enjoy a party weekend away from the ball and chain.
  10. I will stick to the topic at hand (hot dogs), and what Mr. Wonderful has personally posted so we do not make this a discussion about disability payments. He makes his rounds usually twice a month, but he makes his once-a-month major grocery haul the first week of the month (his words, not mine). I was pointing out that he would often buy every quality hot-dog he found, which as you pointed out is not a crime. If an item is on the shelf it's free game, and if he stocks up on a product that he likes when he sees it on the shelf, that might be sporadically in-stock, more power to him. I'm not knocking him, he is not doing anything wrong. Other members are inquiring why they can't find quality hot dogs, and they might have better luck if they visited S&R and Rustans before Mr. Wonderful visited rather than after.
  11. It's common for Gasul tanks to be located right next to the LPG stove/range in many Filipino homes. With the proper regulator, connectors and quality hose it's perfectly safe, issues do happen unfortunately. Full size Gasul ranges can be much cheaper to operate vs full sized electric ranges that have an oven, that's why they are so popular.
  12. His unability cheque comes in.
  13. Mr. Wonderful got a bad rap... some of it was earned, some not. But the fact remains, he makes his rounds the first few days of the month and boasted on many occasions that he bought up every Imported hotdog/sausage/sliced meat pack he found. So if someone wants the best chance to find some of these items in stock, get there before Mr. Wonderful.
  14. Whenever a shipment of Imported processed meat find's it's way to Cebu Mr. Wonderful usually fills his blue cooler to the brim and buys them all. /sniff So, best visit S&R and Rustans the last week of the month and stock up before the 1st of the month rolls around.
